Africa Calling

Well I was so hopeful go be a great blogger but alas I just can't seem to stay up with it. I miss you all so much:) Let me just give a fast run down of the trip thus far. France how many ways can I say it was beyond beautiful and amazing! I am still stunned by the people I met the mountains I saw and being a foodie the ingredients I got to cook with. French dairy products over the top................ I took so many pictures but had no way to up load them and now the photo card is somewhere on a plane headed home with my Sis. So you will have to wait for them. I am sorry.
After cooking for 10 days we did the Paris thing. The first few times we had a plate of food set in front of us that we did not cook we were in awe:) It was so special to share France with Steph and Julie. And big surprise Julies sister and Niece joined us there. Julie had no idea they were coming. Carrie and Stacy were a wonderful addition to our Paris tour group.
After Paris we had a one day lay over in London. Nice to be back where you can communicate. Fun to ride the double Decker bus. And touring London Tour in detail is now way up there on my list of things I hope to do. Oh and in case you are wondering English dairy products not as good as the French..............sorry Great Brit tin.
Currently I am sitting in Heathrow Airport waiting for my flight to Uganda. I just hugged my sister good bye for two month. Not sure how I feel about that.......... I am guessing that by Gods grace this will be an amazing time for me to grow closer to Him and just pour my heart into the the new people around me.
I am praying for you my dear ones and excited to hear from you:)

These are just some photos from my trip last year to wet your appetite for what is to come!

Off we go..........

Dear Friends and Family,
Well supported by your love prayers and $;) I am about to set off on a summer of cooking. I praise the Lord for this amazing opportunity to serve Missionaries all over the map! In case it is a point of interest for some I will give you my itinerary:

June 11th - 26th France:
I will be cooking at the Refresh conference in Grenoble France with my lovely Sous Chef Stephanie Blood!
(This will be your basic Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for 80 the whole 12 days or so . But I am totally stoked the pictures I saw of the kitchen there, well lets just say it is a real nifty set up!)

June 27th July 3rd:
We saved our penny's and dimes and the Bloods of Camarillo are going to do the whole Paris thing!

July 4th- September 8th Uganda:
I will be staying with the Hurley's, Grace Church Missionaries to Uganda. I will play celebrity chef to the Hurley's and the many souls living on the compound there. And as teams come throughout the summer to work with the Hurley's I will feed them as well.................

I just want to say thank you one more time for the love and support that has been shown me. I am so incredibly excited and nervous. But armed with your prayers and in the Lords strength I know this will be a summer to remember.

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen" Ephesians 3:20-21

" My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9
